Lemon TetraHyphessobrycon pulchripinnis
The Lemon Tetra is a small and peaceful shoaling fish which will adapt well to most water conditions. To keep these fish properly they should be kept in groups in aquariums with open swimming spaces and plenty of densely planted areas. A darker substrate and subdued lighting and/or areas of cover will help. The yellow body colour often fades but will increase with a good variety of foods and/or colour enhancing foods.
